My first archlinux wallpaper [svg]

vMmQ3cQ
svg, png, blogpost

It is based on the same punk tux which I use as my user picture here in the forums.
Made 100% with Inkscape (except for the arch logo/text which I obviously did not make) big_smile

What do you think about this?

1.How you add tux to your image in inkscape?

Originally I had found a Debian Wallpaper on Deviant Art I think which contained a somewhat similar tux (if only I could find it now :-\ )
I've started to use it as my avatar in forums and as I didn't know the license and couldn't find the original wallpaper, I decided to re-draw my already with gimp modified and downscaled version with inkscape like this:

1. Make two layers

2. Copy the bitmap graphic in the lower layer

3. Draw similar lines and curves with the Bezier-Curve tool on the upper layer
vMmZsOA

4. Fill the shapes with colors or gradients
inkscape_fill_colors.png

5. To adjust the shapes, use the edit nodes tool
inkscape_edit_nodes.png


Later I changed the design even further, giving the punk tux that dotted hair for example. It does not look much similar to the original one by now (which I don't have anymore).

2.How do you export this image to png?

In Inkscape, File/Export Bitmap or hit Shift+Ctrl+E.
